Verdict

This is a bit more competitive than recent renewals. As I Am is a good yardstick as she is holding her form well, winning by nine lengths at Newbury last month. But Don Cantillon's mare, along with Rosie Probert, is a lot more exposed than most of these and is giving 5lb to her rivals. CAROLE'S SPIRIT is unbeaten over hurdles so far and kept on well to score at Newbury last time when a subsequent winner was back in third. She can continue on an upward curve but Thurles winner Our Katie may need further while Cabaret Girl makes her hurdles bow. Keshi Pearl may not have been as good as a couple of these in bumpers but is going to make a decent hurdler judged on her easy victory at Warwick as the well-beaten third won at Exeter on Thursday. Despite showing signs of inexperience, Tonvadosa was a comfortable winner Kelso earlier this month and is another with plenty of scope.
